Plain old looting is the word that comes to mind when one reads this note from Tal Cual. We read that they sent a helicopter, that is right, a helicopter, to load it with the stored cheeses, jams, hot sauces, etc... that were for sale to the tourists stopping by. Some fat military or chavista creep is going to dine well tonight, free of charge since of course he will not even have paid for the helicopter gas.
We also learn that the INTI has not been able to milk the cows because the employees refuse to work for the INTI. Has not the INTI been able to bring milkmen from anywhere around? No wonder! There is no other major milk farm around and all the other milk farms that the INTI has taken over have long stopped producing milk, and thus probably out of available milkmen or milkmaid, to be P.C.
And apparently they have already started distributing equipment, livestock and what not. Even though no talks about even a token indemnification have started.
La Carolina take over is thus becoming fast the posterboy of the bullshit "social agrarian policies" of Chavez. These are nothing more than the deliberate elimination of a productive agricultural class to be replaced by an unproductive one. Exactly what happened to the Russian Kulaks except that it is spread over time and without significant bloodshed so far. But the result will be the same: a country chronically unable to feed itself.
PS: to illustrate how political the whole charade is, a mere retaliation on Arria, Elias Jaua, currently the radical vice president of Chavez, went personally to announce that La Carolina will be transformed in a socialist clap trap.
